set_electronicFranklin Electronic, The New York Times, and SET Enterpriss have all teamed up to create a handheld version of the game of SET.

It’s hard for me to understand why anyone would buy a standalone dedicated portable game at this point in history, when electronic versions of of the game are sure to be available on the iPod/iPhone/DS/etc sometime soon, but then I’m not as smart as the people at Franklin, the NYT, or even SET.

You can download from SET’s site a series of discussions on how to integrate the game of SET into the math classroom [PDF] in ever-increasing complexity.
